Use of Audit Trails in Monitoring Compliance
To protect the privacy and security of patient information, healthcare organizations must address the circumstances that threaten the information and implement ways to secure the information from wrongful access. The HIPAA Security Rule requires safeguards be implemented to protect electronic protected health information.
You will research articles on audit trails and designing audit trails. Once your research is complete, you will determine an audit process for an event. Your research paper will include what an audit trail is, why it is necessary to perform these audits, what steps would be performed in completing the audit, frequency of the audit, reporting the results and retention of the audit results. The paper will be 3-4 pages in length with a title and reference page.
